Hockney Today

David Hockney can be a pretty divisive figure, but i am a fan. Still, i wouldn't expect to see something as cool from him at this point as the paintings they showed in the Times article about him today...pretty wild.

Booking It Again

more Our Noise-related events coming up this week, starting tomorrow night in lovely Asheville, NC at the bookstore that sounds like a comedy club, Malaprop's. FYI, the Barbara Kingsolver event in November has been moved to a high school auditorium, but tomorrow night we should all fit in the bookstore. good timing for a trip to Asheville as Richard Buckner is playing tomorrow night at the Grey Eagle! Seems like a perfect place to see some Buckner.

then on Monday i'll be in DC for the Future of Music Policy Summit, appearing on a panel in the AM, hopefully watching Al Franken's keynote speech after that, and then at 6 PM i'm doing a solo Our Noise in-store at Crooked Beat Records.

Thursday listening:

Pete Townshend - Scoop
Solomon Burke - Home In Your Heart
Times New Viking - Born Again Revisited
The National - Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers
Franklin Bruno - Local Currency - Solo 1992-1998
Yo La Tengo - Popular Songs
